Welcome to our Thursday Community Win!
On Thursdays we get to tell fun stories about how TechNet Wiki did something that’s a little amazing… bringing community members together.
A few people have been wondering about a mysterious missing milestone that appears in your profile activity: “the Technet Wiki has become a global phenomenon”.

In almost no time, Ana tweeted it!
And then Yuri sent us the tweet:
And Yuri even translated it for us…
“The article about the recognition points at #TNWIKI was updated, including the 20,000 views definition.”
And then Samuel jumped in with some formatting. =^)
